“Police brutality must and should stop. We are tired! Stop taking advantage of your power to intimidate innocent citizens.”
Saumu Mbuvi wrote this on a post on Instagram after her father-in-law was shot and injured by policemen yesterday in broad daylight.
The Nairobi governor’s daughter was really mad at how police officers often shoot innocent civilians for petty offences while nothing is done about it.
Many innocents die or are severely injured by rogue police officers who, often, a time too many takes the law into their hands.
“They shot my father in law today yet it was still daytime!!! Police brutality must stop…Every day we get cases of them shooting innocent citizens and nothing is being done. It’s time this ends.”
Sonko’s eldest daughter Saumu has been in a serious relationship with Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip for a few years now. They even had a daughter together earlier in the month of March this year.
Senator Anwar’s father Mr David Kiwaka was the unlucky victim who got shot and seriously injured by a police officer from Doldol police station in Laikipia county.
The policeman shot him while trying to arrest him for allegedly not wearing a mask.
The senator’s father had to be rushed to Nanyuki Cottage hospital where he is currently receiving care and treatment.
Mr Anwar travelled to Nanyuki to oversee his father’s treatment and also seek justice for the unwarranted act imposed on him.
The senator was really angered by the cruel act exhibited by the police officer.
He condemned the mistreatment and ordered speedy investigations to be implemented in the case.
“My father David Kiwaka has been shot in the leg and brutally injured by police officers at Doldol Police Station, Laikipia County. He has been rushed to Nanyuki cottage. I am currently in Nanyuki pursuing the matter. Justice must prevail for my father. That’s why I’m calling for a speedy investigation and for the officer involved to be arrested.” Mr Anwar stated in a statement issued to Nation.
